Trump Has Asked The Georgia Judge To Review His Decision To Keep The Da On The Criminal Case


A lawyer named Ashleigh Merchant started the process to remove Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis from the Georgia election interference case against former President Donald Trump on March 6. She then told lawmakers about her investigation into Willis’ relationship with a special prosecutor and why she thinks it creates a conflict of interest.
Trump asked a judge in Georgia if he could appeal the judge’s decision to keep Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis in charge of the criminal case against him for supposedly trying to change the results of the 2020 election.

Judge Scott McAfee said on Friday that Willis could stay on the case even though Nathan Wade quit as the prosecutor after it came out that Willis and Wade were dating.

Trump and some of his co-defendants say that Willis benefited from hiring Wade because Wade paid for dates, trips, and food for Willis. However, McAfee found no proof of the conflict of interest. He also said that Willis’s relationship with Wade was a “tremendous lapse in judgment.” Getting Willis removed from the case is “of the utmost importance to this case,” according to the statement. It was made by lawyers for Trump and his co-defendants.

McAfee said that Willis shouldn’t be removed from the case when “a less drastic and sufficiently remedial option is available,” such as Wade quitting.

If Trump is able to successfully appeal the judge’s decision, he might be able to put off the case, which is something he is trying to do this year while he runs for president.

Willis charged Trump and his co-defendants in August with taking part in a plan to try to alter the 2020 election in a way that was against the law. This is the fourth criminal charge against Trump.
